4 stars Gösta was a Spotify recommendation on the basis of listing to the La Bocca Della Verita's excellent album [i]Avenoth[/i]. [i]Fort Europa [/i]hooked me right off. The type of song that pricks up your ears in a session of browsing type of listening and makes you want to remember the band's name. And I had to hear more.

Just enough driving sound, just enough catchy and memorizing ostinatos, just enough discord and movement to be well worth several more listenings. I rather like the interludes of twangy guitar somewhat reminiscent of slower surf guitar or like a Duane Eddy feel to it. Add in notes of banjo and and the Hawaiian guitar and it could sound like it sounds older than it does. But there is also a energetic drumming and a throbbing bass line behind most of this.
